Wasn't your audio at all. So in short = fail and banned. The NG AP is for audio YOU made YOURSELF not for audio YOU like. End of story.

This made me lul. Poor Wade.

The only people I will feel sorrier for are the poor audio mods that will have to deal with the flood of garbage as soon the new system goes up..

Unless it involves an idiot-blasting autoban cannon that mows down the trash as it is submitted.

Or whistle points and exp. I just am too lazy to browse flash sometimes I'm afraid.

Banning their asses won't scare them off enough Wade, if they were caught in the act of uploading stolen material (and they do it again once the ban is over) I'd be a proponent of a complete audio ban where they can't upload any songs anymore at all. Now that, would scare them off.

That's what they do right now. Except that there's no way to ban someone after the first submission is cleared. And some people might be ignorant enough to upload their first song that breaks the rules, but after that, they might actually try to make some proper audio, so a temporary ban is in the best interest, as if they upload stolen stuff more than once, I doubt it'd just be a slap on the wrist and a short ban. I mean, stealing audio is stealing audio, surely the temporary bans will be a lot longer than a review or BBS ban, it just won't last forever.

I'm sure there's alot of beta testing and very, very top secret tests happening with our brand new home.

In other words, probably not but hey, extreme amounts of alchahol and naked twister sounds like fun.. right?

Hey man, shit takes time. Be patient and things will come as they are ready.

Besides, only people having problem with the current system are the rule breakers. So as long as your not one of them, shouldn't matter how long it takes since it won't apply DIRECTLY to you.

And the endless calls for something that will eliminate bombing. Has been a long time though, maybe an update thread to stun the whining idiots.

ah, Wade, maybe when someone submits audio for the first time, there should be a big old popup box with all the rules and regs and boxes at the bottom for putting in thier username and password for agreeing with the rules and regs. just a thought. i too am tired of seeing copyrighted material on this glorious site. maybe these dumbfucks will learn to not be a pirate one of these days. if they want to be pirates, they should "walk the plank."

Ugh, there are already is a pop saying pretty much that. Before they can submit, they have to check off the box saying they agree with the agreement and conditions. If they do not, a pop comes and says they have to preventing it from being submitted.

But how often do people read rules? Havn't you ever skipped past the rules when you've joined a site? Just clicked accept and havn't bothered. I know I have once or twice. If it involves reading, people just don't want to do it. It's a factor of life. I think a punching glove coming out the computer screen and breaking their nose if they neglect to read the rules.

But when it comes to copyright infringements, and yes yes...some people have "acquired" shit loads of music/movies in a non Eff Bee Eye friendly way...but, maybe the rules should say..."If newgrounds gets sued, because you couldn't read the fucking rules, they will give your I.P. addy to Bad Man, and he'll come burn your house down when you sleep"

Lazy fuckers.

I don't think death even scares these people anymore. Maybe we should send letters to their mothers. Tell them that their children could be arrested. The only thing they're afraid of is mummy screaming and taking away their pocket money.

I don't feel sorry for new users.

Ive seen so much shit in the vg genre - and everywhere else - that I wish the bans were actually more stringant - in fact - you should be able to ban someone just because they suck - but thats my opinion.

Also, I think the vg genre needs mods.

and you guys need content filters - for example - not receive any emails that has the words " why was I banned" all in one sentence :P

in retrospect it really is hard sometimes to tell in vg if something is actually stolen..

man, at first i thought i could get some help here
but since both wade and tom don't answer any pm's (i know they're probably busy....), and wade only made two fucking posts after dropping this thread, i don't think posting here is gonna do me any good.

Anyways, maybe one of you other guys who still checks this shit can help me out:

I've submitted audio to the portal for the first time.
It was a remix of the original tetris song, BUT i made it purely from SCRATCH. No edited tracks, no downloading was involved at all. I made it on FL Studio, and here is what it sounds like: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iUvq1jn1G sA

I've put it on youtube, as you can see :/

Now, i want to know, can you be banned for remixing an original track if you made it from scratch? If not, i was wronged >:|

If so, then fuck, when do the ban clearings start T^T

Yup. Might not want to be what you want to hear, but the rule is no copyright violations. That doesn't just mean sampling without permission or uploading spice girls tracks - covering someone elses work (what you're doing) is also a violation of law if you don't have explicit permission from the copyright holder.

Seems the rules are selectively enforced on Newgrounds though.
